With the sound of rain on the roof Tuesday night it was time cure some cabin fever. We left the beast behind and did some bush whacking and wading on the lower section of a well known coastal stream. Much to our surprise, Marc (member of the men’s technical conference) nailed a Silver. It was in surprisingly good shape as we released it.

I followed up later with a nice hatchery hen. Egg patterns continue to work well and my Sage 99, with indicator line, continues to make me very happy with its performance on coastal streams.

It appears we have a series of storms approaching and perhaps they will give us some badly needed rain and get the fish moving. Lastly, the final steps for all hatchery fish; fillet and then the BBQ!
